I did these three helix piercings for Sahar when I was in San Diego in January.  Today she came in and grabbed some new jewelry for them.  A yellow gold micro pave spiral and two gold prong set CZs- awesome!

Fresh triple scapha with prong set stones in threadless titanium for Christina.  (By the way, you’ll notice me calling these “scapha” piercings because that’s what this upper area of the ear is called.  The helix is the actual ridge of the ear, and “flat” is sort of a misnomer, as this part of the ear is rarely flat. Anatomical names for the win!)

Hi!!! Thanks so much! I’m in San Diego right now, and I’m heading to NorCal to Monterey on Sunday. After this trip, I probably won’t back to California anytime soon. Definitely not in the next 6 months or so at least. Feel free to email me! Richardeffinivey@gmail.com

These young ladies came in together and got some awesome oral piercings that most piercers don’t get to do every day.  A smiley with a 16g titanium CBR, and a vertical labret with a titanium curved barbell and a bezel set purple opal.  Heck yeah!

Jenny has impeccable taste in jewelry!  She chose these two titanium gem clusters from ANATOMETAL for her fresh conch and tragus piercings.

Oh. My. Goodness. These weights from my Hawaiian brother Julian Ganesha are a treat to look at and to wear. Lead free bronze gives these a nice coppery tone that I can’t get enough of.  Get yours! www.JulianGanesha.com

So idk if you do this kinda stuff but one of my lip piercings is swollen,pussing, bleeding and in pain I've had it for 6months and I recently (month ago) switched from horseshoe to straight bar. I've been cleaning it but what should I do?

If I had to guess, you switched the jewelry to something ill fitting / externally threaded / made of poor materials, and I’d be curious as to how you’re cleaning your piercing and suspect that that might have something to do with your issues as well. 

Thanks for the link and for answering I really appreciate it. I guess I left a few things out, sorry about that. I do massages 2x a day for 15min and the 10mm decrease is over three months, which I understand is not too long. Is there anything else I should be doing? sorry for all the questions, I live in the middle of no where and don't know anyone else who is modified.

Ah! It sounds like you’re on the right track then.  Give yourself more time for sure.  

Will you or have you ever come to the Sonoma county area in CA? I would love Skme work from you! Dx

I'll be in Monterey next week (September 1-7).  That's probably as close to you as I'll ever be.
